Read "Jazzfestival Saalfelden 2017" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Fotografare lo stato dell'arte nell'ambito del jazz e delle musiche limitrofe è compito che il festival di Saalfelden svolge assai bene ormai da decenni.

Bolzano
06.02.2017

Eleganza, precisione, arrangiamenti che coniugano intricati contrappunti a trasparenti unisoni, attenzione ai contrasti dinamici e agli impasti timbrici. Senso dell'esplorazione e della sorpresa.
